Year End Workshop - Remote Class

This year, in addition to conducting the Year End Workshop in Cincinnati, we decided to provide a remote Year End Workshop class (actually, we scheduled two of them).

The first remote program was held last week (November 9 - 13).  

Here are several key elements from that program:

  • Our clients who responded to the evaluation noted that the remote classroom environment worked well for them
  • Their ratings of the trainers competence were high
  • We learned to advise clients to send different staff to different sessions (if different individuals at their company are handling different elements of closing out the year)
  • One suggestion is to continue to improve our ability to foster more communications from the participants in these remote sessions.  
  • We may add daily testing in the future to ramp up the level of “positive learning anxiety” 
  • The advance remote connection testing and advance communications allowed for a smooth start and for minimal technical issues
     As a result of this positive experience, we expect to provide more remote training for our clients in 2016.  Key advantages for our clients for doing so can include:

  •      increased efficiency due to having more learning opportunities
  •      decreased skill development costs due to elimination of travel costs
  •      less time needed for developing skill due to elimination of travel time
